Micro learning has a lot of potential in online education and education in general. As we progress through times the demands on peoples time continues to increase. This has led to people searching out educational alternatives to the traditional in classroom on a set schedule programs. Working at a online school I see more students both school age and adults coming to us because of our flexibility with pacing and their ability to work asynchronously from both their instructor and other student. Microlearning is going to be the next step in students need for flexibility and if I’m being honest they are already demanding it. The ability to learn something that is broken down into very small chunks will allow students to access and continue with their learning whenever they have a moment. Just like students are moving away from the classroom and into digital learning due to the flexibility and access it gives them they are also moving towards the flexibility that microlearning provides them versus the need to sit down for large periods of time to learn something.
